Christina Applegate is returning to series television as the star of ABC's comedy pilot Sam I Am. Jean Smart also has joined the project.

Meanwhile, Amy Brenneman and Merrin Dungey have been cast in the potential Grey's Anatomy spinoff.

Additionally, Michael Rapaport has been tapped as the male lead in CBS' comedy pilot Fugly, Melanie Griffith has signed on for a potential recurring role on CBS' Viva Laughlin! Diedrich Bader has been tapped to co-star opposite Stephen Dorff in CBS' drama pilot Skip Tracer, Stephanie Childers has landed the female lead in ABC's comedy pilot American Family, Jamey Sheridan has joined CBS' drama pilot Babylon Fields and Ty Burrell has joined Fox's comedy pilot Action News.

  Sam, from ABC TV Studio and Brillstein-Grey TV, centers on a woman (Applegate) with amnesia who has to rediscover her life. Smart will play her self-absorbed mother.

Applegate had been heavily pursued to star in a series since the end of her previous show, NBC's Jesse, but this is the first pilot she has agreed to do. The Married With Children alumna won an Emmy for her guest-starring role on NBC's Friends. Her feature credits include The Sweetest Thing, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Employee of the Month. She is repped by CAA, Management 360 and attorney Stephen Warren. »
